Sapphire Bead Art Deco Drop Earrings
2 3/4" (including ear wire) by 1/2"
"925" on lever-back
These Art Deco drop earrings are a 1920s design with faceted sapphire-glass beads suspended from each end of chain. These earrings are from my personal collection. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings are simple, yet versatile and noticeable. The color is perfect for women who look best in cool hues. Scroll down to see complementary Art Deco bracelets.
Vintage Bracelets, 1920s Jewelry, Granbery JewelryThis sterling silver filigree bracelet by Granbery is a fine example of a style that was very popular in the 1920s. With its sapphire-glass baguettes and diamanté accents, this piece has the same construction and appearance as its fine jewelry counterpart. The excellent articulation and clasp with safety catch are the hallmarks of high-quality. Although one of the baguettes has a small surface chip, my expert jeweler has confirmed that the stone is firmly set. The bracelet looks perfect when worn. Granbery advertised their flexible bracelets in the June 1925 issue of The Keystone, a jewelry trade publication.
